Aesthetic and biomimetic meaning to deal with the nature and expression of beauty in a minimally invasive fashion.  Emphasis of this twelve day program is to return the decayed, damaged or unsightly tooth to its original form, function, strength and esthetics while maintaining as much of the natural tooth as possible.  Clinicians will learn techniques to preserve tooth structure through sound clinical and evidence based dentistry.  No longer will you cut teeth down for crowns, a process that further damages the tooth.  
 
Our world renowned faculty will cover direct composite restorations on anterior and posterior teeth, porcelain veneers, inlays and onlays, all part of a minimally invasive approach.  The teaching environment is through lecture, hands-on and live patient demonstrations.  With limited enrollment, participants will receive an intense level of individual attention and instruction.  The Continuum was designed to integrate the lecture concepts into hands-on workshop skills.  Dr. LeSage will do two live patient demonstrations that will include all the knowledge and techniques developed throughout the program and assure a complete understanding of these exacting techniques. Time is allotted for questions and answer and open dialogue on how to treatment plan many esthetic scenarios.  Each session builds on the prior session in a fashion that will transform your dental philosophy and practice.  
 
Additional subjects that are covered are adhesive dentistry, composite and ceramic material selection, color, finish & polishing, implant esthetics, photography, smile design, occlusion and practice management.  Each subject matter is covered in-depth with the latest techniques and has significant clinical application.  Many participants have chosen, as an optional assignment, to present an AACD Accreditation type case.  Faculty is made up of mostly full time private practice clinicians that will share with you their daily clinical skills, techniques and experiences.  
 
Let us give you the knowledge and experience you need to perform the most conservative, rewarding and esthetic procedures in dentistry.
